IPA premiering at MNG

For Pietro Tomasini, who is in charge of school classes at IPA, the first day at MNG Zurich ...





Help that works



IPA is engaged in transitional and developing countries with
focus on learning and education.

IPA offers help for self-help, e.g. through projects in the fields of food production and water supply as well as the issuance of micro credits.

The unique aspect of the IPA brand is the
integration of youth in the implementation of projects. This gives Swiss students the opportunity to gain formative experiences.

School classes and junior-teams define, plan and execute their projects independently but are supervised by experienced IPA staff.


All projects are inspected by IPA on location, and once completed, are checked over again. This way all donors have the guaranty that their money is being used in exactly the right places and that people are really getting the help they need.

IPA premiering at MNG

as an instructor was very special. After almost 40 years he returned to the school where he had scraped through A-levels with mixed feelings. However, two committed teachers and a keen, exceptionally motivated group of students helped him to feel at ease. It didn't take them long to get engaged in the topic, and their ideas are ambitious: planning and building a health centre for about 15,000 people in the north of Malawi. At this stage the most essential is the planning phase. The needs are great, the resources of the students limited. Which sub-project is to be carried out first, what's the ideal list of priorities? They discuss medical issues and think about the wishes the patients might have.

There is a lot of work ahead for the youngsters, but the people in Mjuma have already good reason to rejoice. All the while, the former MNG pupil is getting a completely new picture of the school he once attended.
